(High-Decorative) NEW ARRIVAL! An outstanding, collector-level antique Oriental rug from the celebrated South Persian tribal group, this antique Persian Afshar presents the unmistakable stamp of a master weaver who imbues a sense of movement throughout her design by rendering each detail with individual expression that is captured at the moment of weaving. The difficult-to-dye apricot tone of the border attests to the weaver’s skill as a dyer as well. At over 140 years of age, most of the kilim ends and multicolored edges of this area size rug are still intact, a feature not lost on rug collectors.
